Nikolaï Rimski-Korsakov: Le Coq dʼor (Der goldene Hahn). Suite symphonique
Dmitri Chostakovitch: Symphonie N° 4

For the opening of the 2019/20 season, a firestorm seems headed towards Luxembourg, ignited by the Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre and its principal conductor for over thirty years, Valery Gergiev. After Debussy’s Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, featuring what is arguably the most famous flute solo in the history of western music, there are two works from the Russian repertoire, both of which were censored by the Russian authorities. Rimsky-Korsakov’s satiric opera The Golden Cockerel was forbidden during the composer’s lifetime. During the Soviet period, Shostakovich’s monumental Fourth Symphony, which closes the evening, suffered the same fate.
